Let’s face it!   Sunglasses are the embodiment of cool and make an immediate statement about who you you.  Looking for fun in shades this season?  Well, this season’s looks are all about making a statement.  We all know how to do that, right?

Sunglasses:  Kalnins – Bravia v1.51

Sunglasses have taken their cue from runway and street fashion.  Retro looks like aviators and oversized “Jackie O” frames along with sleek, futuristic sheild shapes compliment what’s going on in fashion.  You may find that just like clothing, the same old fashion trends are popular again.  Retro looks are considered hip and are expected to generate a tremendous response from those who follow fashion.

Aviators… Shaped like a teardrop, metal-rimmed aviators have always made a comeback since World War II when pilots wore them.

DeLa

 

Don’t you just love it when you’re favorite fashion designer is talented enough to create almost everything you need to wear in Seond Life?  Sometimes you wonder why you shop anywhere else.  Kuranosuke Kamachi brings it all together at her mainstore… DeLa.  When you first walk in, you’ll find the shoes just calling your name… “buy me Kat… c’mon, you need another pair of shoes or two“.    Then after you buy a few pairs, you realize now you need a few outfits to match.  Okay… let’s go shopping!

Okay, I say this every year… I NEED A NEW BATHING SUIT!  Every season, designers find a way of making bathing suits look better an better.  The textures so much more life-like, the shadowing on the fabric, the detail in the knot of the pareo, each prim can be manipulated  for a better fit.  The “Margarita” Seablue bikini is exactly what I needed.  This bikini is tattoo friendly and comes in all layers.  There are prim bows and layer bows so you can wear it with or without the matching pareo. Kuranosuke Kamachi thought of everything.

Skin:  Redgrave – Leticia tan

Hair:  ETD – Nadia – blonde

Bathing Suit:  *DeLa* – Bikini “Margarita” Seablue

Summer is almost gone and we will miss those fabulous fashionistas wearing light and colorful summer clothing, but don´t cry – autumn is an exciting season for mix-matching outfits. Today I put different designers in a pan and mixed them well to get these looks. Let’s start from the top; in the first picture the cute hair with the hat costs only 40 L from W&Y. Can you imagine? So cheap and yet chic! Let’s go down a bit to the necklace called Moonbeam from the famous JCNY Collections and further you can see the black jacket “Nicole” from =Dela*= which comes with different options and sizes, as well as various color options. My pants and shirt are from a set called Oro d´autunno from Emporio Naima and my shoes are the new release from Bax Coen: Bax Ankle Boots in black patent. The lush fashionable skin is called Adriana in “dark blue” from Glance – I will write more about Glance skin for my next week’s blog post, so stay tuned and check it out next Wednesday.

In the second picture, I am wearing a cute sweater called “Maia” (part of a set with jeans) with an oversized collar which comes in different color options in a package –  it’s almost only available like this with lots of colors to mix with, at Barerose Tokyo. My jeans are from =Dela*= and what you see here is only one of many choices for the autumn. The sassy hairstyle is “Danita” from Hair Solution – you will find it in 5 different colors per package. My skin is again Adriana from Glance, but in another makeup tone called “Sexy”. The shoes are the fabulous Bitchy Boots from Stiletto Moody and the matching black striped opacity socks are from Sheer.

“The Creator made Italy from designs by Michelangelo.” –Mark Twain

Firenze makes your senses reel. This city is treasure-crammed: The Duomo; dominating the Tuscan skyline, with it’s multi-coloured facade of pink, white and green marble, the Ponte Vechio bridge, Uffizi and Accademia Galleries, and countless more art and historical treasures. SecondLife has brought some of this to life at the re-creation of the Piazza della Signoria, the civic center of Florentine life. In the square you will find bits and pieces of Firenze scattered about. Among some of the displays you will see the bronze statue of Perseus holding out the severed head of Medusa, carved by Cellini, and of course, the most famous and magnificent statue of David, by Michelangelo. To look upon David is to behold perfection.

I am back to present some more fabulous Summer fashions to you. I hope you had a great week with the various shows, SL5B events and everything else, as I did. You have an even better week up ahead, though!

I’m starting this week with this pink and white ready to wear dress, which has recently been released from Armidi as part of their “Color me Summer” collection. The dress is available in many other summer colors such as green, blue, white/black, yellow, etc (All of the Armidi colors!). Together with the collection, there are also bangles in matching colors and for this I wore the pink version of the bangles. The Skirt is nicely sculpted to fit the any avatar and to compliment the skirts short but big poof shape, I added a thick white belt from M*A*ii*K*I. Matching pink Slinky Stilettos are from Maitreya and available in many other colors.

I’ve prepared these three Summer inspired outfits for you all to view and be inspired by yourself, in order to create your own Summer wardrobe. Summer is an amazing time of year, especially for fashion lovers, and it’s time you really expressed to the SL-world your own sexy style!

Fashions fade, style is eternal. Yves Saint Laurent quotes

I am depleted, but oh what a day! Shopping on the Via del Corso, drinking unbelievably delicious cappuccinos (I’ve had several to keep me going) and eating Italian ice cream – which, by the way, is not just a scrumptious food item, but a work of art. Those of you who have seen those marvelous ice cream shop displays know what I mean.

Here I am, laying on the Spanish Steps because I can’t move another inch. Thank goodness I wore this really comfortable and cool outfit from DeLa I brought with me. It comes with two pairs of pants, long ones or these adorable shorts I am wearing. I love the cuffs on these shorts and the scarf detail really sets off the look. There are 11 colour choices and each one is simply delicious. I knew I was going to be on my feet all day, so I prepared and wore these great little slides from Truth. While shopping today, I found these earrings that matched perfectly, so I just had to put them on immediately and tossed my old ones into this great bag from Muism, which is great for all this shopping I am doing.
